  1. I love using the iPad to connect to the projector, but I have run into one issue and wondered if anyone else has had this problem. If I try to display a video from an iPad, the device cannot send the video and audio at the same time, so the video shows and the audio is heard with a slight delay. It’s like watching a film with an audio track that is not synched. Any suggestions for how to fix this?
